In Response To: Migration for Islamic State, contd. (Kian)

Dear Prof. Rafi wrote "those who live their lives in an unIslamic system are FASIQQON, ZALIMOON and KAFIROON."

But I think "all those who do not rule or judge by the Quran" are Kafir (5:44-47).

Dr Shabbir will definitely give a better response. All I can say is that it is no possible to practice and practically apply Islamic values in an unIslamic state. You have referred to the translation with terms like "all those who do not rule or judge by the Quran" are Kafir (5:44-47). The term rule itself signifies Islamic state and authority. These were the basic reasons for the migration of the Messenger from Makkah to Madinah. Don't you think that Allah would have helped him in Makkah. He migrated to set up an Islamic state where Islamic values could be practiced. For this, you need authority and control. This was also the reason why Quaid e Azam fought for Pakistan's creation. Otherwise, Islamic rituals were freely practiced in India. It is not possible to rule or judge in accordance with Quran in an UnIslamic state. The Quran also extolls those who live in an unIslamic system to migrate to an Islamic state. In the Qur’aan, Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

As for those who wrong their own "Self" by not striving until the angels (the Universal Laws of death) approach them, they are asked, "What kept you occupied?" They say, "We were weak and oppressed in the land." The angels say, " Was not the earth of Allah spacious enough for you to migrate?" As for such, their habitation will be Hell, a miserable destination.
